Finished a Page and Moving On

I took it pretty easy this weekend, after I took care of my one commitment on Saturday morning. The rest of my weekend was spent stitching and napping, and I really needed it!


Saturday I finished up page 4 of Tour des Marques and started page 5, its moving along nicely and all I want to do is work on this piece.

I have managed to keep taking a picture a day... 11 days strong and still going!


Friday January 8 -Public transport, I'm so glad I don't have to take the bus anymore!


Saturday January 9 - Tracks in the snow


Sunday January 10 - Keeping warm, Hunter waiting for the heat to kick in


Monday January 11 - Happy Birthday Mum! Mum's birthday flowers.

Tour des Marques looks fantastic. It's a really impressive piece. Love your fabric too. It suits very well.
Nice pictures of the day.

Tour looks wonderful! I enjoy your pictures... what kind of tracks are those? I wonder what happened when they met up? My cat doesn't hang around heat vents, he waits for a patch of sun and in the meanwhile hunkers down under the duvet.

Way to go with the pictures!! Love the buses and tracks in the snow. I posted a few on my blog. I've had to be *really* conscious of it and remind myself to take a picture every day. It's been hard so far! Your stitching looks beautiful, looks like you've made good progress!

Claire said...

Yay on finishing page 4! It is looking so good Dani, and I am impressed that you are doing the backstitch as you go. I always leave it to the end and regret it!
Love your pics, especially hunter, he's adorable!

Great Stitching and your pictures are wonderful.

Thanks for the comments on my pictures! I didn't intend for my pictures to turn into what they have, I really just wanted to get the practice with the camera and Photoshop, but with some things that are going on in my life now it's just sort of taken that direction all on it's own! It has been alot of fun to see what you have taken as well...fun to see things from a different point of view...what catches our eye and gets me thinking about a picture I could take, giving me some different ideas as well! So glad that you are doing this too!
